The French forward took Joe Willock’s pass and drove a clinical strike past Rui Patricio in the 86th minute. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had Arsenal’s first sight of goal when he stabbed straight at Wolves keeper Rui Patricio from a Dani Ceballos corner. Adama Traore carried the main threat for Wolves and the winger teased Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac before crossing just too high for Leander Dendoncker. David Luiz halted another menacing raid by cynically chopping Traore down to earn a booking. Arsenal’s youngsters were growing into the game and Eddie Nketiah almost caught Rui Patricio off guard with a long-range shot that the keeper turned onto the post with his foot. The visitors took the lead two minutes before half-time when Willy Boly misjudged the bounce and Aubameyang touched it on to Tierney. Tierney’s deflected cross reached Saka and he hooked a fine finish past Rui Patricio from 12 yards. Saka’s fourth goal of the season in all competitions was the first Wolves had conceded in 448 minutes stretching back to their win at Tottenham on March 1. Wolves striker Raul Jimenez appealed in vain for a penalty when Cedric Soares made contact with him as they challenge for Traore’s cross. The introduction of substitute Diogo Jota lifted Wolves and the midfielder had a goalbound shot blocked by Luiz. Traore should have done better than chip tamely wide from Jota’s defence-splitting pass, while Pedro Neto’s effort was too close to Emiliano Martinez. Mikel Arteta knows Arsenal must make a flawless finish to the season after a 2-0 win against Wolves gave them renewed hope of qualifying for the Champions League. Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka celebrates scoring at Wolves Arteta’s side made it three successive league victories thanks to Bukayo Saka’s first half strike and a late Alexandre Lacazette goal at Molineux. Arsenal are now six points behind fourth placed Manchester United with five games left. Fifth-place Chelsea were playing later and could move two points ahead of United. The Gunners remain a long shot to reach next season’s Champions League, but if second placed Manchester City’s continental ban is upheld, a fifth place finish would secure a place in Europe’s elite club competition. “Every game you have no margin for error, we know that we try to win every game,” Arteta said. “Let’s enjoy it a little bit before we start thinking about Leicester and try to go again. We try to improve as a team. “It’s probably one of the best wins because of the difficult schedule we’ve had and how well they have been doing all season. “Winning is not an easy thing to do and it’s another step forward in our process and I’m really happy.” Just days after Saka signed a new long-term contract with the club, the 18-year-old underlined the potential of Arsenal’s emerging crop of academy graduates. After the panic caused by consecutive defeats following the coronavirus hiatus, Arteta has steadied the ship impressively. Wolves’ hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were hit by their first defeat in four games since the restart and they now sit three points behind Manchester United. “We have to focus on ourselves. We never look at the table. What drives us is our performance,” Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo said. “We didn’t perform so well and that’s what guides our approach. The rest is something we cannot control.” – Fine finish – Once again there was no place in the Arsenal squad for out of favour midfielder Mesut Ozil or Matteo Guendouzi, while Nicolas Pepe was absent after his wife went into labour.last_img read more

Action! Film Scenes Shot on Location at RFH

first_imgBy Bernadette Hogan |RUMSON – When a handful of students were asked to spend last Saturday inside Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School, there was no grumbling.The young actors and film fans chosen by Film Studies teacher Dana Maulshagen were given an opportunity to be in a feature film, “Immortal,” and work alongside a film industry professional, Rob Margolies.Immortal is a 4-part anthology feature film about ordinary people who come to realize they cannot die, told in the style of the Twilight Zone. Margolies is the producer of the series, and director of this installment.RFH alum Rob Margolies, left, directed and filmed a portion of a four part series, “Immortal,” at his alma mater. Photo courtesy Eliana WeinfeldMargolies, an alumnus of RFH Class of 2001, has always been passionate about film. After high school, he graduated from Chapman University with a BFA in Film Production. During his senior year he won a scholarship to work with Oscar Award-winning director William Friedkin (“The Exorcist”) and his first film “Lifelines” was borne of this venture.Growing up, Margolies divided his weekends between the comfort of the Red Bank movie theater alongside his grandmother, Thelma LaBove, and trips to the former Movie City Video Store of Little Silver. Pouring over video box descriptions, film credits and teases, Margolies was hooked.In the fifth grade, Forrestdale English teacher Jeff Pedone noticed Margolies’s creative writing, and suggested he combine that talent with his love for movies.“A lightbulb flashed,” Margolies recalls. “I thought: I can do that for a living? I can tell crazy stories for a living?”As a film student, he recalled feeling fueled by immersion in a creative environment. Forfeiting frat parties, he spent time writing and experimenting with ideas.“In film school, I found I had to work harder than everyone else. I hate being competitive, but I believe everyone should have their dreams come true.”His experience working with Friedkin helped him learn fast. “It was his bluntness I respected so much. It made me work ten times harder. I didn’t take anything personally, but his words of wisdom pushed me further. Two years later, I was making my first feature film.”Margolies will tell you, for every dream, there’s an algorithm. Finding financing for films is no walk in the park, it’s a numbers game. That’s where his knack for producing comes into play.“If you’re asking 100 people for funding, and keep getting turned down, then you need to reevaluate yourself and the project.”This is a subject Margolies, a resident of Manhattan’s Upper West Side, covers at The Actor’s Green Room in New York City, a training space for actors, where he draws upon his background teaches courses on auditioning for independent films, finding investors for feature films and “Everything You Need to Know About Making a Movie.”Instruction is based off personal experience: as a director what he looks for within the first ten minutes of an audition – “first impression is everything” – and how if you’re going to embark on a film venture of your own, finding investors and persistence is everything.“To struggle and overcome, to focus on a passion – it’s both a blessing and has a curse element to it,” he said. That’s why growing up Margolies says he didn’t fit the mold.“I was a film geek. But I knew I wouldn’t be that normal person in any respect – even in film,” he said. “I didn’t have a choice.”Margolies has two sons, 4 ½-year-old Bastian – named after his favorite character in his favorite film “The NeverEnding Story” – and 3-year-old Ellis, a name owing to his love for New York City.“If I can inspire my sons, if I can see that my kids live their dreams, then that’s enough for me. I want them to see me as someone who may not have won an Oscar, but someone who worked toward their dreams.”He admits with a laugh, “And it’s all based on luck, I’m getting closer to making a movie like ‘Shawshank’ [Redemption]. I’m getting closer to fulfilling my dreams.”Margolies predicts “Immortal” will be finished within the year, with actors Dylan Baker (CBS’s “The Good Wife,” SHOWTIME’s “Homeland”) and actress Lindsay Mushett, of whom Margolies says, “I’ve never met someone give such a natural, riveting performance” upon her first audition.In his spare time Margolies attracts talented filmmakers via developyourmovie.com. Those interested have the opportunity to pitch the film idea, and Margolies determines whether or not he can help find financing for the project.This article was first published in the May 10-17, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)The SEC is an absolute grind. The West has long been considered the toughest division in college football, and the East may be back on the up-swing with teams like Florida and Tennessee showing signs of life recently. Add in the league’s penchant for scheduling big-time non-conference opponents early, and the vast majority of these teams refuse to take it easy.A few months ago, we ranked the easiest and most difficult schedules in all of college football. Only one SEC team made our ‘easy’ list, while a third of the most difficult list was made up by SEC programs. The preseason edition of ESPN’s Football Power Index strength of schedule rankings is incredibly bullish on the entire SEC, with eight of the conference’s teams in the top 20.Which team has the hardest schedule of them all, and who is taking it (relatively) easy?
